mentioned, both president obama and mitt romney both say they are not for legalising marijuana. >> i spoke to barney frank. i said why do you care so much? >> i believe in personal freedom and liberty. i believe the efforts to shut down internet gamble. i think it contributes to a good deal of the sense of unfairness of young people that are told they shouldn't do this but then see older people engaging in things that have a greater impact on people. and then i think important at the federal level that means cutting military spending and at the state level that means not doing as much as -- people that smoke marijuana. one of the best things we can do to reduce state expenditures is to stop going after people who use marijuana. >> you could also make money on it. very good point. the analogy is prohibition. we could tax it. again, it is the expensive. it is not family done. if you look at the arrests for marijuana. they come from minority groups and there are highly educated and upper income white kids that smoke it and the big problem in new york. it adds a degree of social disorganizatio
're awaiting dueling speeches today from republican presidential nominee mitt romney and president obama. both candidates campaigning across the battleground state of virginia. governor romney in springfield, mr. obama in virginia beach. it is the third time in a week they are both hitting the same stage. shane deapril is the editor of campaigns and elections magazine. democrats are pretty confident about virginia this time. should they be, shane? >> we've seen some dueling polls out of virginia. there are some that show the president with a clear lead. some show the contest quite a bit tighter. but i think what you're seeing with amount of time both campaigns are spending in virginia it is such a key state when it comes to the electoral college calculation for both campaigns. essentially in my sort of electoral college predictor i have president obama at 237 electoral votes right now. so that means the three really big swing states, ohio, virginia, and florida, they could be really killers for mitt romney if he can't find a way to wrestle two of those away from president obama. if the preside
a handful of states ohio and florida being the most important governor romney plus win in both places that's why today's polling news is causing controversy. talking points has said from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor one week from tonight in denver, colorado, the president will meet the governor at :00 p.m. eastern time. no question and all the polls show this that most americans are not happy with president obama's leadership, especially on the economy. many of the folks don't trust mitt romney. however, if the governor can do what ronald reagan did in 1980, that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates, then the polls will surely change. that's not an easy thing to do because the debate formats allow the candidates to say pretty much whatever they want to sacht the moderator next week jim lair is not going to control obama or romney. he will ask a question and keep quiet. that's not a knock on will he leher. any interruptions are deemed inappropriate. the out of touch with the folks. the president has spent hundreds of
election. and for the second day in a row both mitt romney and president obama have been campaigning in the same battleground state. this time it's virginia where both men targeted the same group of voters. let's walk over to cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta who's been out on the campaign trail watching what's going on. another dramatic day. virginia, virginia, virginia. pretty important place. >> that's right. a rare visit to washington for me. but it's good to be home, wolf. all politics is local. so it was no surprise to hear both candidates hit on national security themes today in their speeches in virginia. but the state is much bigger than that. it's really a republican firewall for mitt romney. in battleground virginia, both president obama and mitt romney pulled out the heavy artillery before a group of veterans, romney slammed the president for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is
-language romney ads in nine states. it's another attempt to soften romney's image. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. he'sticking ufor idob that's kind of cool, isn't it? romney hopes this video will have an impact. but there's another video affecting romney's campaign in a very much bigger way. >> and so my job is not to worry about those people. i'll never convince them they should take personal respbity and care r r s. >>t is brutal. the hidden fund-raiser video where romney disparaged 47% of americans is not helping with swing voters. it's also hurting romney with his base. "the new york times" talked to a worker, kenneth myers, an unemployed republican from ohio. romney's cments didn't sit llh s. "the last thing, where he was going on about the 47% who are dependent on the government is hard to swallow. i think i'm part of the 47% he's lking about. but i don't want to be dependent on the government." that's a pretty good indation of where that commenhas taken this campaign. e a ais if ry'm
. ♪ lou: good evening, i'm lucina santiago. president-- i'm lou dobbs. president obama and mitt romney campaigning today, and both candidates on the attack. with 4 # 1 days to go until the election, new polls show the president with a commanding lead in the key swing state of hoed showing the president with a 10-point lead on governor romney extending a six point lead from the same pole a month ago, and presidentba
. what type of ground game do you see obama and the romney people virginia? host: both president obama and mitt romney in virginia today. guest: virginia has become a true battleground state. the campaigns are here every week. you have a significant level of enthusiasm for both of these candidates. people that are committed will turn out for these rallies. the numbers are not overwhelming because there are so many of these events. you are looking at thousands, tens of thousands of people at these events. michelle obama was here recently. she filled the auditorium. some candidates generate high levels of enthusiasm. think about sarah palin. she had a rally in fairfax four years ago. it was an energetic and a powerful rally in terms of people getting excited for her. host: jim from massachusetts. caller: i think basically the election it is useless. i see it all around the world. all these leaders will collapse all the world economy to start the world bank for the new world order. both of these candidates, all they do is play on everybody's ults. the supreme court made a bad decision. ho
thank you both for being here tonight. steve, is romney running for the wrong job? should he be the accountant in chief? >> the thing with this is, any politician who has to start answering questions over the height of their campaign about taxes, that's going to be a problem. it meshes so perfectly with what democrats and president obama have been trying to say about the republican party in the republican party's priorities. the idea is the protector of this sort of privileged pampered super elite that's been immune to the great recession that's enjoyed preferential tax treatment, things like this, romney, when you start talking about a guy who pays such a low effective tax rate, he looks like the kind of person that republicans are trying to protect and the proof is in the pudding because there was a poll that jumped out at me. they asked voters, do you think the candidate romney -- candidate obama understand and care about your problems? for obama the number is near 60%. for romney it's under 40. i think there's the image that he conveys is makes it very difficult for peopl
't think the situation is that dire yet. they do acknowledge both inside the campaign and outside that they are losing and the main reason that the republicans in ohio point to is that romney doesn't really have a cohesive message and said this is why you should throw barack obama out and install me as president. the key issue is the bailout of chrysler and general motors that the president pushed through. they say romney hasn't been able to come up with a consistent answer to this and the obama campaign has been mmering on this. one republican i talked to put it very bluntly, a senior republican in ohio said that obama's advantage on the auto bailout is quote a kick in the balls for the romney campaign. you can't say it, so i will, but that's sort of a consist ebt criticism about the campaign that they haven't been able to develop a message about that. >> i got to hear you say it. that's good enough for me, peter. one thing that's interesting to me, from your reporting and i i know you spent a lot of time out in the field, that romney has a good ground game in ohio. knocking o
editor. welcome to both of you. joy, our current daily tracking polls have mitt romney not believing in polls now. that could change several times. what do you think mitt believes about swing states, and bear in mind that by the end of this segment his position on polls could have changed. >> exactly. you know what? i think the best story of the week really besides the sam jackson making an awesome ad about voting is this unskewed polls. have you heard about this, this website where became people on the right have been allowed to leave the planet -- >> like the bubble. >> they have entered the bubble and sealed it. if you reweight the polls where there are many more republicans than democrats and you live on a different planet, mitt romney is winning, he's way ahead, he has no gas. it's beautiful. it's a wonderful reality. i think mitt has decided to enter into that unreality because it's much happier there. >> dr. peterson, you don't really need to read the polls to know what's happening, do you? because rick santorum and virginia governor bob mcdonald are going to iowa, and chris c
, the romney people today. it appears to be an effort to contain the damage done by what you just said, cynthia, 47% disclosure they didn't want to disclose. let's listen. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good paying job. >> who measures compassion by how many people are on welfare? who is the story man they're trying to argue with? >> they are trying to make a caricature out of president obama calling him the food stamp president. this reminds me of the story where the woman comes home, finds her husband in bed with his best friend and he says, honey, it's not as bad as it looks. you have the 47 -- >> is that a joke or true life story? >> i'm sure it's happened once or twice. you have the 47% remark with romney speaking and other people have said it, not just me, with complete conviction and passion, telling people what he really thinks. an
, they are in the state of virginia. and that's why brianna keilar is there watching very closely what goes on with both these candidates. let's talk about the president. he's due to speak in about 45 minutes from now. and i think mitt romney is due to speak in springfield at the same time. so if the election comes down to these particular key states, is this where we'll see them and this is it? >> these are the states where we'll see them. ohio yesterday, extra have a today. and a couple things going on here. you mentioned early voting. early voting both absentee, mail-in and in-person, begins in virginia today. so no coincidence that you have barack obama and mitt romney campaigning in the state. but they're trying to cut into each other's base. where is mitt romney today? springfield, virginia right outside of washington, d.c. northern virginia, that area, is really obama territory. and here we are in virginia beach. this is not obama territory. and i think one thing that shows that is actually we're here at at the farm bureau live. the band that will be performing next here because this is a music v
job is not to worry about those people. >> reporter: looking to halt the damage, the romney campaign also out with a new ad. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle-class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: as romney goes on defense, we asked him about the criticism from fellow republicans about his campaign. about those critics within your own party? will there be changes at the top? are you doing anything wrong? >> there are critics and cheerleader cheerleaders. we have people of all different persuasion. >> so, no changes? >> every day, there's improvements and messages that come out. >> reporter: but romney's moment, redefining the moment in a week ago. pressure for romney to perform on that debate stage against the president. you've been practicing. any nerves? >> i don't worry about the opportunity to be on the air and to face the president. he has his views. i have mine. >> reporter: the governor saying he's ready. some are calling that debate a do-o do-or-die moment. i want to take you back to that image. yo
4.5 points. yesterday both candidates holding rallies in ohio, crisscrossing the state, sometimes almost running into each other they were so close campaigning. mitt romney tried to brush back suggestions his campaign is faltering there after that "new york times"/cbs/quinnipiac poll showing him ten points down in ohio. >> i'm very pleased with some polls, less so with other polls. but frankly at this early stage, polls go up and down. i don't expect to get 100% of the vote. i know i'm not going to get 100%. i hope to get 50 plus percent and make sure that i become the next president. >> talking about all those polls yesterday, mitt romney cited gallup and rasmussen, a couple of national polls that says the numbers are even. >> wait, willie, i don't understand. why would he cite the gallup poll, which i would usually cite the gallup poll if i were a republican candidate because the gallup poll usually is a little more conservative. what's the current gallup poll looking like? >> well, there's the daily gallup tracking poll showing president obama up six points in the points. maybe
